Footnotes

1 Schenker’s diary for this day records: “Mrs. Kolischer appears at 3:15 instead of 3:30 to reply in person to my letter; she explains that her sister came only out of curiosity [see lesson for December 9, footnote], and will naturally stay away in future. But she still keeps coming back to the point that she herself would like to jump in as my pupil in the event that her daughter goes away. Every objection I raise against this she initially does not wish to understand, until I explain that she may indeed accompany her daughter to her lesson; but even if she is placated by this, the lady, who is apparently much plagued by greed, cannot accept that she would have to pay the lesson fee, even in the event that her daughter goes away, without someone else taking the tuition in her place. The mutual consultation between mother and daughter, in my presence, was of a thoroughly Polish nature, as was the daughter's suggestion of whether it would be possible for each to have just half an hour's lesson. I very much doubt that it will be possible to continue the tuition!” — Schenker’s diary for the next day records: “Letter to Mrs. Kolischer, in which I, returning to yesterday's conversation, clearly express the wish that I want to be faced with only one pupil.”
